From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

When we were testing an early prototype, one of our coworkers said it looked like a cute robot spitting out dominoes. So they drew a face on it. From then on, the domino machine had a face!

By the numbers

Domino runs set up for testing: 460

Gears prototyped: 8

Most dominos toppled in a single run: 150!

    We love it!!!my husband built it for our 2.5yr old and because it does have choking hazards )it’s meant for 9yr olds, she is only allowed to use it when we are next to her. We keep it out of reach. But she loves it! She is really good at putting the dominos in and turns it on and off herself. Really great little robot :)

    My son (age 6) really loved this project. He needed some support from me, but mostly did it himself and has loved the end result.
